Enjoy the company of an expert guide who will share many cultural and historical insights through the tour and make this an even more memorable experience.

Then, head to Suwon Hwaseong Fortress, the official fortress of Suwon-si that was built in the late 18th century by King Jeongjo of the Joseon Dynasty to house and honour the remains of his executed father. Designated as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, this fortress now provides a scientific, architectural, and artistic insight into Korea’s past. Walk around this 5.7 kms fortress in the peace of the night and witness its brilliantly illuminated sights. With the beautiful lighting at ideal spots of the fortress, enjoy a romantic walk while feeling the night breeze.

Discover the four gates that face each of the cardinal directions—Janganmun (north), Paldalmun (south), Changnyongmun (east), and Hwaseomun(west)—and the seven-arch style Sumun gates that straddle the point where the nearby stream reaches the palace. Walk past the north and west gates to reach the Yeonmudae Post, where the troops trained themselves in fighting skills involving swords, spears and arrows for over two centuries.
